The Gun Nerd is back after a late submission that didn’t make it online last week. I am going to call it technical difficulties. I am not sure I was the only with those issues this past week.

It seems that Omolon has a shortage of Eirene RR4 Sniper rifles because again this week we have the Uzume RR4, AGAIN.

  • Hakke Zarinaea­D Auto Rifle
  • Suros DIS­43 Scout Rifle
  • Suros JLB­47 Rocket Launcher
  • Hakke Aoife Rua­D Sniper Rifle
  • Omolon Uzume RR4 Sniper Rifle

We are going with my usual format short and sweet with a description of the perks. I give you my picks for each node from most preferred perk to least preferred perk. I do not list all the available perks just the few that I think will balance and complement the weapon’s base stats.

My preferred are marked with a *

Hakke ZarinaeaD Auto Rifle
This is the medium RoF and Impact (88/8) with a 0.90s TtK
­The base stats on this Auto Rifle make this a great one and the perks can make this great.

Scope node:

  • LC Ranged ­ Häkke marksman scope. Improved optics and range.
  • LB Assault ­ Medium ­range assault scope. Improved optics and range.

Third Column Node:

  • *Crowd Control – Kills with this weapon grant bonus damage for a short time.
  • ­Hot Swap – Readying this weapon grants a brief period of bonus accuracy.

Fourth Column Node:

  • *Counterbalance – This weapon has increased stability.
  • ­Rangefinder­ Aiming this weapon increases its effective range.

Fifth Column Node:

  • * Hand Loaded – This weapon is effective at an extended range.
  • ­ Fitted Stock ­ Increases weapon stability.
  • ­ Rifled Barrel ­ Increased Range Slower Reload

Suros DIS­-43
This is a medium RoF and impact Scout Rifle at (37/48) with a 1.00s TtK.
­This is the closest to the Vision of Confluence as you are going to get in Year 2.
I am not completely sold on one best perk roll for this scout. The only perk I know it needs to have is Full Auto just like the VoC.

Scope node:

  • SRO­37 – Improves Range
  • SPO­28 – Improved Target Acquisition + AA

Third Column Node:

  • * Fitted Stock – Reduces Vertical Recoil
  • Perfect Balance – Lowers Recoil Slightly
  • Hammer Forged – Improves Range and Accuracy

Fourth Column Node:

  • * Full Auto – This weapon can be fired in full auto mode.

Fifth Column Node:

  • *­ Rifled Barrel ­ Increased Range Slower Reload
  • Small Bore – Increased Range and Stability slower reload, Reduced Magazine Size

Suros JLB­47 Rocket Launcher
­Rocket Launchers are all about how big is the BOOM and how fast can it get there!
­This is THE BEST Legendary RL in the year 2
­ You heard me!! 84 blast radius 74 velocity 60 AA (4th best overall AA if you are wondering)
There are faster RLs and there RLs with a bigger blast radius; however this one balances them both.

Scope Node:

  • * Hard Launch – More Velocity and Blast Radius. Increased recoil.
  • Soft Launch ­ Increased Recoil. Boost to Velocity.

Third Column Node:

  • Heavy Payload ­ Increases warhead blast radius.
  • Flared Magwell – Reload this weapon even faster.
  • Speed Reload– Reload this weapon quickly.

Fourth Column Node: <These perks are Guardians choice>

  • Tracking ­ Shells fired from this weapon track their targets – or Titan Taikonaut helmet
  • Grenades & Horseshoes – Rockets from this weapon will detonate early based on proximity to
  • targets.
  • Tripod– This launcher’s tube can hold three shells.

Fifth Column Node:

  • * Javelin­ Increases warhead velocity.
  • Snapshot – Aiming this weapon is incredibly fast.
  • Quickdraw ­ This weapon can be drawn unbelievably fast.
  • Single Point Sling – Move faster while aiming

Hakke Aoife Rua­-D
This is a Medium RoF and impact sniper rifle at (26/22).
This sniper can revive sniper but can’t super snipe in the Crucible.
This sniper is definitely geared to a be a PvP sniper with the perks offered.
I am going to offer up a PvP and PvE perk list for this weapon since they are so different when it comes to Sniper rifles.

PvE roll for this sniper:

Scope Node:

  • ATB Long Range ­ Long­ distance scope. Increased range, slower handling.
  • ATD Raptor ­ Standard sniper zoom. Highlights enemies with low health.

Third Column Node:

  • * Surplus ­Expect to find more ammo for this weapon.
  • Unflinching ­It’s easier to aim under fire using this weapon.

Fourth Column Node:

  • * Performance Bonus ­Kills with this weapon have the chance to grant bonus reserve ammo.

Fifth Column Node:

  • *Appended Magazine ­ Increased Magazine Size Slower Reload
  • Snapshot ­Aiming this weapon is incredibly fast.

Sadly there is not much left in this perk tree that will help this gun shine in PvE.

Scope Node:

  • * ATA Scout ­Light, low­-zoom sniper scope. Improves weapon handling.

  • ­Unflinching­ reduces reticule bounce while under fire from 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock
